I just purchased the following replacement motherboard for my Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40GHz processor, and was wondering if there is anyway to get the fan to run faster than 1500rpm according to Speedfan? I thought I might be able to go up to 2300rpm.
Run Prime95 to keep the CPU 100% busy and check how fast the fan spins to keep it cool enough. By default the fan shouldn't spin at full speed unles more cooling is required. You could also set CPU Fan Profile and CPU Q-Fan Control as per your requirements.
